Robot Table

The robot table is where students work with their robot.  The framed perimeter allows all of the robot parts to be contained within the table top.  By allowing the students to ‘spill the bucket’ of parts within its borders, the robot table allow accessibility to parts while keeping all the pieces from falling onto the ground.  The following are a few table top robot tables.  Most of the examples listed below can be constructed using 2×3 studs and plywood or OSB sheets.
